CLARINS Cleansing Milk With Gentian Review
April 15, 2011 1 Comment
Clarins cleansing milk with Gentian is recommended for oily/combination skin. The full-size bottle contains 200 ml and retails for $29.50 (19 euros).
I’ve tested a small 10ml sample bottle which was enough for 12 make-up cleansings. Compared to Sisley cleansing milks I’ve tried so far (with Sage and with White Lily) Clarins has a much runnier texture.
The smell of Clarins cleansing milk is very unusual – it smells like man skin-care product.
As for the cleansing, a small amount is enough (I was surprised that something so tiny lasted so long). I can use it both on face and eyes (although avoid using it on eyes if your eyes are sensitive).In spite of being adapted for oily skin, it is not drying at all.
It is pretty decent cleanser, but not the best. It takes off the majority of the foundation, although I still see a bit of foundation when I use toner. This cleansing milk dissolves some mascara, but not enough to completely remove it.
Of course, I follow with a foaming cleanser, so this doesn’t bother me much, but if cleansing milk is your only method of cleaning, then this might not be the best solution.
